Finally getting to the East Village and the much-talked-about Veniero's Bakey for a visit to Italian Pastry Heaven.......hope you are not reading this on a empty stomach........
Window was decorated sweet and I loved the stain glass at the top.......
Of course they have cannoli, but as you can see, chocolate and vanilla cream which I do not see everywhere. The cream is the "correct" cream as I call it, made with ricotta which I could eat alone with a spoon.
I was delirious looking at these cases of pastry and there are quite a bit of them
I had brought a cooler with me to be able to take items with cream to not worry about getting spoiled until I got home. You must come prepared when you visit a place like this. It is a must!!
They make their own maripan, which is a confection made of almonds reduced to a paste with sugar & often molded into different forms, usually diminutive fruits & vegetables.
Cookies galore are in the cases as well. I was really stumped as to what I was taking home on this trip.
Did I mention the cannoli? I love the choices of chocolate shell with chocolate cream.....you must really love chocolate for this cannoli !!
So many dainty works of pastry art adorned these cases......I couldn't help but smile !!
For the fruit lovers out there, wonderful little tarts with pastry cream await you .......
This is probably my second favorite Italian dessert to cannoli. It is just so light and fluffy and nice after a meal as not too sweet or heavy.
The good news is they ship their items! Click on their name below for their website and see what you would like to order.....you cannot go wrong with any items here. They are made in the old-world style with care and passion which you cannot find in just any bakery.
